I guess so; the Frogatto website says that the art is proprietary, but that they will likely give permission when requested :)

What about the people who have already bought the now-deprecated version of Wesnoth on the App Store? Are you just going to leave them out to dry?

If Apple allows us to transfer the ownership across to the new port we will certainly do so.

Take the trademark certificate from USPTO as evidence, file a DMCA take-down request at the App Store to take down the old version, and use the trademark holder address-of-record to put up the new version when it's ready.
I forked real life and now I'm getting merge conflicts.

Regarding how to set up donations, maybe talk to the 0AD people and ask how they do it? Their model might also work for BfW.
